    Hugs Jay,

    So very sorry to hear there was no sack/embie

    I am glad you are out of limbo land and can start getting emotionally and physically ready for your next cycle.

    It's also good to know your HCG is nearly less than 1 so you can transfer once the evil witch arrives (although in this case you will look forward to the wicked one!).

    Best of luck xoxoxox

    Thank you Livvyloo & Checky Seven!

    Here's hoping the next one is more straight forward from day 1! I want to enjoy pregnancy as much as possible through the symptoms and not dread results. for us all.

    You don't know how much the kind words of the 3 of u (Livvyloo, BBB & Checky Seven) has helped.

    I'm also very lucky to have met another IVF candidate in the waiting room on my first egg collection who has become a great support throughout & also and a sweet friend. She is now hitting 7 weeks pregnant and all is looking perfect for them so their little munchkin heart is strong & she can enjoy this round!

    Hugs 2 all!

    Please keep in tough, good luck ladies, thank you thank you thank you!

    Ps no meds for a while yeah! And when coffee smells & taste better I look forward to having one or two cups before it's off the menu again! Lol

    Happy mums & Mums 2 be Day ladies, hope we all have new additions for next year,

    Today I enjoyed my first coffee & eggs benedict since Tranfer etc so guess my taste buds are back yippee (as this means that Hcg should be back to normal = which means that the "evil witch" as Cheeky puts it arrives = & that means we can start again YEAH). Oh & sorry to rub it in but it was my best breaky in ages mmm haha.

    You know I'd rather be pregnant but it's better then being in limbo. Personally i would have struggled getting through today it would have sucked the big one if I was still in the limbo world. So if anyone is reading this that is in limbo I am sorry & give you extra big hugs!

    Guess my Dr was a little wrong on the whole it looks like my bleeding is behind me thing as Fri night had a strange discharge & the bleeding started again yesterday morning . Guess my body has OCD too is just making sure it's all clear for take off! BT tomorrow (Mon) will tell The Tale of the HCG! Here's hoping it's back to norm but I'm pretty sure it'll be sweet considering my boobs ( or hormbags as my husband referred to them this morning since it's depends on the level of hormones on there size oh & he said the Scan Appt should be called the Probe Appt as from what he has seen it's more fitting he makes me LMAO) have shrunk so much etc.

    Hugs 2 all!

    Ok time for update. Now about to start attempt No.5!

    My non-viable / chemical pregnancy hit me hard but when I started FET for attempt No. 3 I had renewed hope and was very positive about the fact i'd have no drugs to inject & therefore it would be easier for my body to hold onto the emby once it attached. I was more wrapped up in how the thawing process would go ( still very protective of them haha). Luckily the one survivor from cycle 1 survived thawing & was transferred so I thought that was the sign of things to come - but I hadn't prepared myself for some of the same preg symptoms but NO attachment! As you can guess my heart sunk the morning my AF hit and my DH had to really encourage me to get up that morning. I felt even more empty as I had kept telling myself 'third time lucky' 'third times the charm' but it wasn't to be again.

    Fortunately I still had lots of frozen ones so was able to jump straight into it. Sadly things cycle started off with a loss of 2 embies during the big thaw but the 3rd had an 85% cell survival so it looked better then cycle 3s so I once again got myself all hopefully & when no spotting, bleeding or AF & all the preg symptoms I had this time I was so convinced. By BT day still nothing so now I was positive & excited at getting my result. So silly me I didn't go straight home & got the call whilst in a little boutique. This one hurt - nothing a BFN with the extra hit of i was expected AF that day! So after the boutique owner helped to console me & I dried my tears with paper hand towel I went home. I was trying to tell myself that maybe they were wrong, I thought I knew my body better - only to be proven wrong again as I wasn't home 5min when my AF started. Home along I cried so loud. My DH tried his best to make me feel better from his workplace & my fav nurse Maria called me to check on how I was holding up.
    So now I'm starting again! No. 5!!! I'm finding it hard to get excited, even asked the technician at what point do they call me if all remaining 3 embies don't make it! my FS doesn't know why and has let as try a few medications 'just in case' such as a course of Doxycycline incase I have an infection, Preduislone (cortisone low dose) which might help environment in womb, and Aspirin (once again low dose) which helps thin the blood / reduce inflammation & therefore may also help the womb enviro,at least that's the hope.

    But none of these Meds are certainties if anything its a contrversial area ( http://www.abc.net.au/rn/healthreport/ see 15 Aug 11 segments on IVF <predictor, aspirin & IVF, plus vanishing twins> ). But I don't have time to get a lining biopsy done ( and i think a biopsy itself is contraversial these days & not offered by many clinics anymore) so it's like IVF for me all a trail and error scenario. The Infection thought will prob be more likely for me due to my history of UTIs, but still I am not holding much hope this time round. I my be clutching at straws as no study has been done to show the results of any of these roads in Aus but I don't care.

    Is 5th time my time! I suppose time will tell. Transfer 23Aug preg test 3Sep if no AF. This is our last chance in Adelaide as moving to Melb in late Sep. Fingers crossed.

    Hope u ladies are well. Hugs 2 all!

    Good luck! There are brilliant specialists here in Melbourne. Hopefully you won't need to meet them as you'll be UTD before you get here.

    Thanks Bellalika! Well my pregnancy test was negative, but I kind of expected it to be as had some bleeding (only 1.5days though but quite heavy - not the usual 7 days of 3 x heavy, 2- 3 x medium/ light and then some spotting) so it was a strange cycle.
    That being said I have been feeling really strange / different but my hpt's (first response) are still negative.

    It is really bizarre: my boobs are growing almost pouring out of my bra, which it normally doesn't fill properly, I'm feeling really upbeat despite BFN news & stresses of getting ready to move, and my weight hasn't dropped like it usually does after my cycle, although my thighs seem to have shrunk my gut hasn't instead it has gained a muffin top (normally fairly flat).
    Also i'm hungry alot & I'm feeling bloated especially after meals or when sitting. When i am lying on my back I feel like a weight is resting on my stomach it feels heavy.

    I don't know what my body is doing it's crazy!

    Anyway we have decided we are taking a break instead of trying to squeeze in another FET so we'll try again in Melbs next year that way we should be settled and rested & hopefully my body isn't so confused by then LOL!

    Hugs 2 all!

    Thought I'd drop back in to give some closure on this thread. After 10 cycles and my endometriosis removed we finally have a BFP. We have tried so many different ways to do IVF even PGD but this time was a low stim 2x3dt which we hadn't tried as all our other transfers were 5days. EDD 24May14!! but until we have our first scan Mon I'm trying to (but failing miserably) stay grounded and not get ahead of myself!


    DH - 33
    ME - 36
    IVF cycles: 1 (fresh - BFN), 2 (FET x2- Biochemical), 3 (FET - BFN), 4 (FET - BFN), 5 (FET - BFN), 6 (FET - cancelled as embryo wasn't viable on defrost), 7 (PGD fresh - Biochemical), 8 (PGD FET - BFN), 9 (PGD Fresh - BFN), 10 (fresh x2 - BFP 😄 EDD 24May14)
